[ejabberd] Ejabberd 'module could not be loaded', httpc, request,

Thanks for the response!
You running: Erlang R14A (erts-5.8)
I had the problem with:  erts-5.7.2

Once I downloaded the Erlang tarball and compiled an R14A, I was fine too.

R13: has inets-5.1 ... R14 is much like 5.5 or something(so least not
the same version)

Per my module you right, it is something I made for our app, pretty
useless for anyone else, so I post the snipet:

login(Server,User,Passwd) ->
    Url = string:join(["http://",Server,"/ejabberd/validateTokenAndPogoId/",
Passwd ,"/" , User], ""),
	{Resp, Result} = httpc:request(Url),
	response_handle(Resp, Result,?GENIUS_AUTH_OK,?GENIUS_AUTH_REJECTED).

Can you help me identify that R13 inets supports: httpc:request(Url)?
where would I find the docs for the 5.1 version?
Is there a way to look at the beam file:
some way to inspect the symbol? decompile? confirm it has
request(String) support?

It seems to relate to the version because simply switching the erl
executable in the ejabberctl make the above work.

Along the same notes is there a way to tell what version of Ubuntu I am using?
uname-a >> does not tell me anything
And is there a way to force to fetch erlang from a later release?
Clearly you got R14 on debian from somewhere... I would like it too :)
ATM I compiled from source.

I know many questions... any answer much appreciated.
